The Medium Sub-Capital Laser, also known as the SCL/2, was the middleweight of the Sub-Capital Lasers produced by the Word of Blake. When it hit a target, it was like being hit by a Barracuda missile. Even more frighteningly, the SCL/2 wasn't dependant on ammunition so it could fire as long as the Pocket WarShip had power.[2]

Though they were more responsive to their control systems than their larger cousins, they still had difficulty targeting targets smaller than 500 tons.[2]
